BOSS has announced that it is now shipping the new GT-Pro ($999). With a dual-COSM® effects engine and an I/O section that includes XLR outputs, three sets of send/returns and a USB port for data exchange and audio flow, the GT-Pro was designed to apply to the front-end for driving a wall of powered cabinets or for direct, pro-grade recording applications.
The GT-Pro was constructed by combining any two of the 46-amp models, then layering, switching or panning between them during performance. Amp channels can even be controlled by the strength of a player’s picking. A companion lead tone is instantly available with the click of the Solo Switch.
The GT-Pro provides 44 effects categories, with 200 preset and 140 user-patch locations. Choose from compressors, overdrives, delays, reverbs, choruses, EQs, wahs and dozens of other effects. The GT-Pro also offers ultra-flexible effects routing. Its 13 effects blocks can be configured in any order; externally, a trio of effects loops plus an array of assignable outputs enables the most flexible signal-routing configurations.
The GT-Pro offers top-grade analog circuitry and balanced outputs, and is equipped with four ¼-inch analog audio outputs, a pair of balanced XLR outputs and three pairs of effects send/returns. Signals can be split to other amps via the stereo sub outs.
For one-cable patch management, a USB port is provided for connecting the GT-Pro to a computer; the GT-Pro comes with Mac/PC editor/librarian software at no additional cost. In addition, the GT-Pro provides USB-Audio functionality.
